Government spending on daycare exceeds $4.2 billion, an all-time high
from The Globe and Mail
Government spending on daycare has reached an all-time high with new data showing the provinces — with help from the federal government — are spending more than $4.2 billion to provide regulated daycare spaces across the country. Although the increase is driven largely by the almost $2.5 billion Quebec spent on its child-care program in 2014, the data compiled by the Toronto-based Childcare Resource and Research Unit also show year-over-year increases in spending in Ontario, Alberta, B.C. and Manitoba that has helped add more than $602 million in daycare spending since 2012.
